While couriers J and M travelled to Scandinavia, couriers Richard and Paul were making their way back from Spain and Portugal with eight dogs on board.

Sarah’s dogs delighted to be reunited with her, despite the hailstorm that greeted them at their new home
Solo, Ollie and DeDe
Collecting Avril’s dogs was a pleasure, as all three were highly entertaining and we enjoyed a very welcome cup of tea. After moving from Turkey to France, Avril is now back in the UK to be near her son and his family in Northamptonshire.
Shih Tzu Ollie is quite forward and enjoys giving a high five
DeDe might look cute but she rules the roost completely
Avril adopted German Shepherd Dog Solo from a Turkish rescue centre. He was ill and covered in sores, and Avril just fell for him. She nursed him back to health, and today he’s a social older gent in super condition.

The Aquadrome is a fantastic environment for people and pets alike
We scooped up Wilbur at a kennels in Calais, where he’d been waiting to join our trip. His owner moved back to the UK a little while ago, and now Wilbur has joined the family.
